  • Women in Canada’s changing post-pandemic labour market

May 2024

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives released the Women in Canada’s changing post-pandemic labour market report. The project was funded in part by Women and Gender Equality Canada. The report examines the impact of the pandemic on women in the workforce and what has happened since. According to the report, the situation for low-waged workers has not improved, and the ongoing struggles of pandemic-vulnerable industries remain a threat to women’s economic security. The care economy continues to struggle and has not recovered from the job losses that occurred during the pandemic. Similarly, there has been a loss of capacity in health care and social services – with employment losses and wages failing to pace inflation.

The study notes that the gender pay gap as of 2022 in Canada remains one of the highest in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and according to the report, the gender pay gaps in professional services, finance, and insurance widened between 2019 and 2022. The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives concludes the report by discussing the potential implications of the findings concerning women’s future employment and economic security and what’s needed to move towards a gender-just future.
